Paris-Brussels: Good Goss!

Matt Goss, all of 22, wins today's oldest pro race, the somewhat predictable, flat Paris-Brussels. The Aussie survived a bunch gallop edging Allan Davis. Sporza video here showing the last KM. Riis may have a nice sprinting team with Goss and Breschel, if he can keep the former from his rumored exit.  OK, Goss to Columbia-HTC is considered a done deal, making Mark Cavendish cycling's youngest mentor. I can picture it now:

"Here's how you do it Matty. Just get in position with 5km to go, stay on Albasini's wheel (or Renshaw's or Eisel's or whatever) to about 300 meters, then launch the world's fastest acceleration and you should be good to go."
